TAFE NSW SWSi invites regional industry leaders to breakfast
TAFE NSW -South Western Sydney Institute TAFE (SWSi) will host a series of business breakfasts designed to inform regional industry leaders of the changes taking place in the TAFE system but more importantly to also reassure them of TAFE SWSi’s ongoing commitment to provide excellent education and training for regional businesses.
Three breakfasts are planned in the coming weeks at different TAFE SWSi colleges: the first at Campbelltown College on Thursday, 23rd October; the second at Wetherill Park College on Thursday, 6th November and the final one at Padstow College on Wednesday, 12th November.
A delicious breakfast prepared and served by the Hospitality section will be followed by a presentation on change in the NSW training system from TAFE SWSi Director Peter Roberts who will then lead a Q & A session.
Mr Roberts said his presentation would advise breakfast participants of what is changing and what is not changing in 2015 and how and the best ways for industry and community to access TAFE SWSi services.
“The breakfast is also a chance for leaders in our region to tell us how they want TAFE SWSi to work with them to meet their needs and to find out how training excellence can improve the bottom line for businesses and build skills to increase employment in our communities,” he said.
“TAFE SWSi would continue to respond to the changing demands of industry, students and the community and also review our own business practices and service delivery to accommodate a new funding structure and ongoing reforms.
“We have the skills and the capability to deliver excellent services but we really need to know what business and community leaders want and how we can support them in this changing environment,” Mr Roberts said.
TAFE SWSi gives local residents the chance to enrol in one of more than 700 courses across a wide range of industries such as community services, hospitality, business, finance, manufacturing, transport, design, IT, interpreting, building and construction, he said
TAFE SWSi is one of Australia’s largest educational institutions, with 72,000 enrolments every year at nine colleges across South Western Sydney, in workplaces all over Australia and internationally.
TAFE SWSi is also the 2013 National Large Training Provider of the Year.
